About the Presenter
Global STEM Ambassador Jay Flores is masterful at motivating students to become tomorrow’s innovators. The power of STEM, Jay advocates, can help young girls and boys solve big (and little) problems and contribute their best ideas to improve our planet. Jay holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and was elected at 19 years old as the youngest voting national board member in SHPE history. He lives in the Miami area, but travels frequently for speaking engagements and to compete at an international level in Obstacle Course Racing.
As a member of SHPE, you’ve already revealed who you are— motivated, hard-working, committed. Now it’s time to show what you can be, to show what distinguishes you from the many qualified individuals looking to make it in today’s economy. This program will help you identify that special something—that X-factor—and use it to excel as a student, a professional, and leader. In monthly webinars, our subject matter experts will cover topics ranging from how to ace an interview to navigating the impact of cultural norms on communication and the role of gender and age in the workplace. Though designed with our student members in mind, latinXfactor™ is open and beneficial to all professionals, those that are up-and-coming and those looking to make a change. The monthly webinars are at no cost to you and are an hour long. Although, the format is lecture-based, we have carved out time for questions and answers. Mark your calendar now for 8pm ET/5pm PT on the last Wednesday of every month as we continue to offer expert advice on relevant topics.
